​Cat With Incredibly Short Legs Becomes Instagram Star

​Cat With Incredibly Short Legs Becomes Instagram Star

A cat with incredibly short legs is the newest star of Instagram.

Manchester, known as Manchy for short, is a cute kitty with four-inch long legs. But he doesn't let that stop him from reaching great heights.

Manchy, a mix of Scottish Straight and Munchkin, lives with his owner Alexander Ushakov in Moscow, Russia, and has over 57,000 followers on social media.

His breed is known for their short legs.

Alexander said: "Manchester was born on September 15, 2018 and I bought him at the age of four months. I decided to call him Manchester in honour of the Manchester United football team as I have been a fan of them since 1998."

Alexander decided to create an Instagram account for Manchy as he thought he was cute enough to please other people too. He's certainly that, Alexander!

And the adorable kitty is popular too.

"As it turns out," Alexander says, "he has quite a lot of fans!"

"I think the main reason he has been so popular is because of his cute appearance and adorable posts."

It seems that Manchester gets up to all sorts on Instagram. From bounding around the kitchen trying to catch pretend mice to playfully grabbing at his owner's fingers, he's no stranger to stealing our hearts.

In one sweet post, fans were treated to a clip of Manchy play fighting with a toy fish while, in another, he is filmed wagging his tail at the curtains.

Away from the camera, this cute kitty has just as much fun as on camera.

Alexander adds: "Manchester is very playful and vociferous. He is always meowing, loves playing mad games, and is always running around the house.

"He always wants to be played with and we love him very much."
